CAN-BUS Tester 2
Electrical Signal Quality Tester for CAN / CANopen / DeviceNet / J1939
The CAN-BUS Tester 2 is a comprehensive test tool for analyzing the electrical signal properties and detecting
cabling problems in CAN, CANopen, DeviceNet, or J1939 installations. The CAN tester is designed to assist
engineers to troubleshoot devices, find communication errors, and avoid unplanned network shutdowns.

aximized Availability
The test results expose communication issues that pertain to individual devices,
general communication errors, or the overall network. A built-in oscilloscope function
displays the signal shape and reveals potential signal reflections. In summary, the
CAN-BUS Tester 2 is designed to automatically analyze communication problems
based on electrical issues without the need for a separate oscilloscope or expertise
in electrical engineering.
EXTENSIVE SOFTWARE FUNCTIONALITY ACCELERATES ERROR DETECTION
The data collected with the CAN-BUS Tester 2 is processed by the accompanying
software package. The test results plus the deduced information, e.g. the signal
quality, are displayed in a graphical user interface that also includes an integrated
storage oscilloscope with message frame analysis. The intuitive and user-friendly
interface allows the user to perform an automatic evaluation of the network and
to create an extensive test report. If further analysis of the test results is desired,
the CAN tester software is able to export the test results as CSV files and graphics.
In summary, the CAN-BUS Tester 2 enables a maintenance engineer to quickly and
accurately pin-point trouble-spots in the network.
EARLY ERROR DETECTION RESULTING IN MAXIMUM UPTIME
The CAN-BUS Tester 2 is an ideal companion tool in the early network installation
and commissioning phase. The Tester helps to identify communication and cabling
problems well before the network is fully commissioned. In addition, maintenance
engineers can implement a preventive maintenance strategy by using the CAN-BUS
Tester 2 to generate a test protocol of a newly commissioned network that serves as a
baseline. Deviations in the network are easily detected at an early stage by comparing
the baseline information with a current test run. This information is essential for
effectively planning maintenance work and to avoid unplanned shutdowns. As a
result, the plant runs with an optimal Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
